Samsung has introduced yet another large-screen smartphone.
Unveiled on Monday, Samsung's Galaxy Grand 2 sports a 5.25-inch, 1,280x720 display with a 16:9 aspect ratio, which the company touts as ideal for watching movies, playing games, and reading books. A Multi Window feature lets you use the large screen to run two apps side by side.
Powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, the phone includes a 2,600mAh battery that promises 17 hours of calls and 10 hours of playback on a single charge. Internal storage is a mere 8GB, but you can bump that up … Read more
Next year will see a bigger shakeup in Formula One than we've seen for many years. Not only are the beloved shrieking V8s to be replaced with Turbo V6s, but also the calendar itself is set to be the biggest in the history of the sport. Subject to final approval, 22 races in all will be run, compared with this year's 19.
This includes a record six street circuits, with the addition of New Jersey (battling in the piercing shadows of New York's striking skyline) and Russia joining the likes of Melbourne, Singapore, Montreal, and, of course, … Read more
Rockstar hasn't yet announced a PC version of the overwhelmingly popular Grand Theft Auto V, and fans are desperate for it. A massive number of people -- over 614,000 -- have signed a Change.org petition to port the game, which smashed through seven world records in its opening weekend, to PC. Industry sources have hinted at a PC version coming in early 2014.
But when you want what you want when you want it, sometimes common sense flies right out the window. Thousands of hopeful PC gamers have downloaded a legitimate-seeming torrent file claiming to be GTA … Read more

It's early on a Saturday morning, and after careful preparations, I'm ready to become a multimillionaire.
I'm selling turnips, and the shop in my town is buying them for about four times what most people paid earlier in the week. As a cherry on top, I've opened my town up to a group of Internet strangers who hope to cash in on the pricing anomaly, and who I really hope won't destroy everything I've built in the process.

Although ZTE first introduced the Grand S in January during CES 2013, the device has yet to be available to the US market -- until now.
With preorders beginning Saturday, October 5, the 5-inch unlocked handset will work on GSM/UMTS networks and cost $399.99.

The Grand S runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and features a 13-megapixel … Read more
Victimhood is an easy embrace.
Life is so much simpler when all the bad stuff is someone else's fault.
Sometimes, it's less than believable.
Take the case of Zachary Burgess. He is accused of having visited Baton Rouge, La., and ramming nine cars in a stolen truck. He is also accused of having kept a woman in the truck against her will.
However, as NBC 33 reports, he could allegedly explain it all. Once he had been allegedly captured by witnesses, that is.
Police claim that when they caught up with him, he allegedly told them that he "wanted to see what it was really like to play the video game Grand Theft Auto."… Read more
